Grandparents
Dear Nana, You died on Good Friday and we’re not sure why or even how. There was no pain on your face; you were staring up at the ceiling. You looked death in the eye, full of confidence. You were brave enough to look and see where you were going Nana. Who met you? What did you see? Was there a bright light? Or was it a tunnel? Was there hands out stretched to you? Or was Uncle Billy there to help you through? Your bedroom still feels nice, like nothing bad has happened inside. It smelt like yo...

Angela's Ashes, Slamming the door on the irish cat
Angela\'s Ashes, Slamming the door on the irish catholic childhood  When I think of Frank McCourt’s memoir Angela’s Ashes, the quote that comes to memory the most is when Angela says to Frank, “You are never to let anybody slam the door in your face again.” This quote is not only powerful, it is analogous to what Angela’s Ashes is, a story about an Irish catholic childhood. The Irish catholic childhood was described by Frank McCourt in the memoir as a “miserable childhood”(). Thi...

Shakespears vision of the world in King Lear was
" essentially pessimistic". Discuss. "Shakespears vision of the world in King Lear was not essentially pessimistic. Heroes of romances survive. Heroes of tragedies die". The Shaskespearean critic Kenneth Muir once said this of King Lear, and I have to say, it\'s hard not to agree with him. King Lear can be looked at as a tragedy, taking the death of innocence (Cordelia) into account. However, I feel that King Lear traces not only the painful, but beneficial odyssey of its protagonist from he fol...

Why the Tsar's Power Crumbled in March 1917
Why the Tsar\'s Power Crumbled in March 1917 Why do you think the Tsar\'s power crumbled so swiftly in March 1917? Nicholas II ruled Russia from 1894-1917 and was to be its final tsar. He ascended the throne under the impression that he would rule his whole life as it\'s undisputed leader. Accompanied by his wife, Alexandra, they lived a comfortable life of luxury while the country suffered around them. Nicholas was determined to rule as harshly as his father; however, he was a very weak and inc...

Loneliness
“The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved” (Mother Teresa). Loneliness is an easily perceivable concept in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. It can be well understood by observing the feelings and behaviors of the characters George, Crooks, and Curly’s Wife. Primarily, constant affiliation with other people would not result in loneliness. However, in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men a select group of characters find themselves lost in a forgotten state of uncertainty...

The Dustbowl of America in the 1930s
The Dust Bowl of North America refers to a catastrophe in the early 1930\'s when vast areas of the Midwestern and Western farm lands of America became wastelands. This occurred due to a series of dry years which coincided with the extension of agriculture in unsuitable lands. Droughts and dust storms caused by poor tillage practices devastated farms and ranches of the Great Plains; therefore, causing a great exodus of its inhabitants to other, more fertile, lands. The problem had become so grea...

These notions are shown as one of the main patriarchs, Atticus Finch. He shows his children a principled path through life, and through his court case, he reinforces these philosophies. He also shows the small southern town of Maycomb what it really feels like to be a Negro. Atticus did not fail at either of these responsibilities: as a lawyer, he did no...

Canada's Water Crisis-Do we Sell?
Canada\'s Water Crisis-Do we Sell? Since more than 70% of the Earth is covered with water, one would assume that there is enough water for everyone. However, this statement would be incorrect. Only 3% of that water is considered usable and 2% of the usable water is locked in the polar ice caps. This leaves 1% of that water for the use of humans. Canada possesses a substantial amount of this water, while other countries are less fortunate. One of these countries is the United States of America, t...

Othello as a tragic hero
To what extent does Othello represent the idea of the tragic hero? The ‘Poetics’ of Aristotle are extremely significant when distinguishing the characteristics of tragedy, and particularly important when analysing the character of Othello as a tragic hero. Aristotle writes that there are certain qualities which define a tragic hero: peripeteia, the undergoing of a downfall; hamartia, evidence of a fatal flaw; anagnorisis, recognition of these flaws; and catharsis, the purging of emotions from t...

Both of these countries were governed under two very different ideologies, the USA had a democratic capitalist system while the USSR was a one-party communist state. The communist ideology is based on the idea that the rights of individual people are less important then the rights of society as a whole. On the other hand the USA capitalist ide...

nic Correct preparation can help ease out problems in times of troubles. The novel A Night to Remember, written by Walter Lord, proves this statement true, by illustrating the Titanic’s great tragedy that happened early morning on April 15, 1912. Through the sinking of the Titanic, three lessons that were to be learned, was that communication between ships had to be better; the Titanic’s design was flawed and people shouldn’t have put all of their hope and faith into a few nuts and bolts; and if...

Who am I? Where is here? When is now?
Often when I look at the stars when I\'m in bed at night I shudder to think of my insignificance in the immensity of the Universe. The distances in the Universe are inconceivably huge, so we measure them in light-minutes or light years. A light minute is the distance light travels in one minute, and that\'s a long way, because light travels through space at 300,000 km a second. So in a minute it would travel 18,000,000 km.

Through strong female characters and the implications of disguises, Shakespeare exposes gender issues. Many critics believe Shakespeare poorly represents women in his plays through intentional exploiting of women with his boy-girl-boy disguises. When in...

Interactive classroom versus non-interactive class
interactive classroom versus non-interactive class Willmott once said,” education is the apprenticeship of life.” True it may sound but education has its own constraints too. Importance of education lies in ‘how’ it is imparted than ‘what’ is imparted. Educationists worldwide suggest that there exist two types of teaching methods.
